Hi to anyone who is reading this, I have a quick question regarding running this game on rigs running Linux. Has anyone had any luck with this? I was thinking about buying the game and having a go at it myself, but the price is a bit too high considering it might not work. I've come across a wine entry here, but that one is for the beta version, no way of knowing if this works with the current state of things. There were some other posts on this forum regarding this, but none touched on the subject of wine as far as I've seen, sorry for the duplicate post if I was too lazy to dig deeper. In any case, I hope that someone can provide some feedback regarding this, I know that native Linux support is low on the priority list, but running the game using wine would be pretty good for any Linux enthusiast. UPDATE #1: Bought the game and had relative success with running it on Ubuntu 17.10. which is mentioned in the winedb entry. The game installs fine and manages to run but after that you are greeted with a black screen with only the mouse pointer visible. Clicking around does however produce two different responses: 1. clicking around the center of the screen closes the game, my guess is that this is the exit/close button when you fail to connect 2. clicking around the center of the screen opens this forum in a new browser window, at this moment I have no idea how this happens, I guess it's some clickable link in the main menu when you manage to get past the login Going to continue updating as I go along, installed the game on a windows machine as well in hopes of figuring out the layout of the screen a bit better. UPDATE #2: Figured out where to click after starting the game, but for some reason, clicking the confirm button on the first splash screen does not yield any results. This is strange considering that if you click on the link it opens a browser window. Still experiencing a black screen as well. Will put more time into this during the weekend most likely. UPDATE #3: Finally got this to work without constant flickering! Yay! As it is now, the game is playable, frame rate is pretty stable and I've managed to reduce the flickering issue(if it does occur for anyone trying this). Setup used was as follows: Wine version 2.20-staging Installs Windows version of Steam without issues, game runs, but you could experience a black screen after the initial splash logo. If that happens, steam might have failed installing some libraries so you'd have to install them manually. The following libraries helped in my case: d3dx9 d3dx10 vcrun2012 vcrun2013 You can install these by using winetricks, pretty straightforward to do it. This allowed consistent menu rendering and no black screen after splash, I was able to change game settings and even play just fine. The flickering issue occurred for me after about 10-15 minutes of running the game, could be that my computer is just plain old and miserable and can't handle this, could be something else. One thing that appears to have fixed this issue is ticking "Enable_CSMT for better graphic performance" in winecfg, under Staging tab. This reduces flickering drastically, happens once every 10 minutes or even less frequently. Not sure about what causes the game to get darker at one point, seems to be random. Occurs after the game has been running for at least 30 minutes and the game just gets really dark, this was also mentioned in the Winehq entry. No current workaround for this. Will continue trying stuff out but this is definite progress, at least from my side. Hardware this was tested on: Intel Core2Quad CPU Q9550 @ 2.83GHz GeForce GTX 650 4GB DDR2 RAM 120GB SSD (not sure that this even matters) Software used: Intel firmware for CPU xserver-xorg-video-nouveau display driver for GPU Everything running on Ubuntu 17.10. Newer machines might have better results, mine is pretty damn old.
